So, smoke up while your young, and cut the habit when your about twenty six or seven, thirty at max.
this is simply NOT true. lung tissue is non-regenerative. your lungs naturally decline once their growth peaks around your low to mid 20s. your body will outlive your lungs, naturally. when you smoke, you speed up that decline, a LOT. when you quit smoking, though, your lungs will try to get back on their natural decline, but your lungs will still quit at 55 or 60, rather than, say, 85 or 90 (average). you can't gain that back.
there have been some developments for lung tissue regeneration through stem cell research.

oh, and i'm a smoker.

fuck that. I saw that shit on discovery channel. They had a big thing on the human body and they went through every organ. They went on about this particular thing for about 15 minutes and it was the part where i payed the most attention to. I saw it twice, just so you know where i got it from. I really dont think they would make that kind of stuff up.

i shuda been a fkn scientist !

man! that's a great idea! we should make it a law so that all kids are forced to smoke 2 packs a day starting at 1 day old. Those who survives to adulthood are then allowed to breed. I predict we'll have a smoke resistance generation in about....100 years or so, give and take about (+/-)1000 years margin of error.
